Aberdeen & North-East Scotland Family History Society - Viking Genes

Family historians love DNA-testing and what it can tell us about our lineage. But what are the medical and scientific applications and benefits of this amazing tool?

Shona Kerr is the Project Manager for Viking Genes, a group of projects administered through the University of Edinburgh. They research the DNA inheritance of Scots whose grandparents came mainly from the Western and Northern Isles. Their aim is to improve the understanding of what might cause illnesses such as heart disease, eye disease, stroke, diabetes and other conditions. Shona will share some of the case studies and the discoveries attributable to family inheritance.

This event is open to non-members.  To request an online attendance, please email edinburgh@anesfhs.org.uk
